Monday Mission – Encourage someone
Last week my son, who is in junior high, received an email from one of his teachers. He shared the email with me, and I was so impressed with how the teacher had taken time to share with him a couple good qualities that she saw in him. Junior High kids are pretty influenced by what others speak into them. Honestly, we likely all appreciate when someone recognizes us, or encourages us for something we’ve done. We don’t do good things for the recognition but having someone encourage us can certainly change the outlook of our day. The teacher’s email was a good reminder of the power of words. Take a few minutes this week to encourage someone. A simple email or a written note are a sure way to brighten someone’s day.
Ephesians 4:29 New Living Translation (NLT)
29 Don’t use foul or abusive language. Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them.
